I found an old (many years) bag of Ironite, that I haven't used in ages. It is NOT Pennington branded, and it does NOT say it can be used for vegetables. Can I assume this is the old Ironite (before reformulation) that was rich in lead and arsenic? If so, I will dispose of it. Trouble with old bags of bad stuff is that they never say they're bad stuff. Also troublesome that the original name Ironite was preserved in the new, safe formulation. That is, there is BAD Ironite, and GOOD Ironite. That wasn't too smart.

Also, while I'm at it, the new, safe Ironite is marketed both as "Ironite" and "Ironite II". Can I assume that's just because the former is 1-0-0, and the latter is 1-0-1?
